’24/7: Kelly Slater’ Preview
The World Surf League’s Billabong Pipe Masters begins on December 8th and ends on December 20th, and it marks the conclusion of the World Surf League elite tour. Slater will be competing for coveted and highly regarded titles, including World Champion and Vans Triple Crown Champion. HBO has said the documentary series will take “a revealing look inside the surfer’s life as he prepares” for the event.
The network also noted that the show would provide viewers with “a peek” at Slater’s home life on the North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii, “while he reflects on his career and what’s ahead.”
Slater, who will be 48 years old in February, turned pro as a teenager in 1990 and has had one of the most storied surfing careers in history. He has won 11 World Titles, and he has 55 career victories. He is also both the youngest and the oldest professional surfer in history to win a World Championship. He will be looking to add to his accolades by becoming a World Champion at the age of 47 at the WSL’s Pipe Masters. Slater’s last World Title came eight years ago, in 2011, when he was 39 years old.
Highlights from the show’s promotional trailer include Slater talking about “the wave I look most forward to surfing every year,” to various snippets showcasing the ups and downs of his 29-year career, from champagne-filled celebrations to tears stemming from emotion.
Slater also touches on why he continues to compete: “Of course, we all want to go out on top. I want to go out when the battery’s just done,” Slater said in the trailer. The legendary surfer is back competing again after suffering a horrific foot injury in July of 2017. “You ever folded your entire foot backwards?” Slater wrote on his instagram account. He also shared an x-ray of his broken foot. “I pulled into a barrel this morning and the whitewash bounced the board back into my foot as I hit the closeout…kinda like smashing my foot with a big hammer as hard as I can,” he wrote.
The Pipe Masters will take place in Oahu, and the series will focus on Slater’s preparations leading up to the event. The show will be narrated by actor Liev Schreiber, who also narrated the previous installment in the series, 24/7: College Football.
